Its that wonderful time of year again where we're inundated with artists all vying to grab our votes in triple J's hottest 100. Summarising the songs of 2015, this year we hope to see as much local talent slotted in there as possible. Let's face it, musicians in the eastern states particularly are supremely advantaged in their ability to be heard and promote themselves. Therefore a bit of South Australian pride and support can't go astray in showcasing our own acts who deserve to be up there with the big dogs. So without further ado, here's a recap of a few South Australian best artists who deserve your vote...
A wall of sound, a dedicated band and a cracker of a song, chuck the Grenadiers a vote. (Plus they'll knock off an onion if they hit the 100).
After a monumental year, we would be supremely disappointed not to see Bad//Dreems' 'Hiding To Nothing' or 'Cuffed and Collared' up there on Australia Day. Even their 'I Can't Feel My Face' cover deserves a vote! Let's give these fellas a run in the 1s.
Tkay Maidza killed it this year, particularly with this late released track 'Ghost' so give our very own Tkay a vote!
Try not to get this song stuck in your head, we dare you. The Heartaches deserve a vote.
Silky smooth vocals and a beautiful EP, Timberwolf has all the credibility to earn your vote.
Signed to Poison City Records this year, joining the likes of The Smith Street Band, and releasing a fresh new EP streaming here now, Horror my Friend are on the up! Let's give them all the help we can!
Again like so many artists, 2015 was great for West Thebarton Brothel Party. Let's keep their momentum going.
Jesse Davidson's songwriting and musicianship is second to none; this quirky guy has wowed us all year. We'd love to hear 'Laika' or his Childish Gambino cover this Australia Day.
An understated achiever, Ollie English's cabin thoughts EP has left us speechless this year. This blues revivalist certainly deserves a vote!
